It was a great morning for the annual Nozawa Onsen top to bottom race this morning. Nozawan Swiss import Gabriel Sutter took out the covered number one spot in fast but slushy conditions. Congratulations Gab. He is the first ever foreigner to take first place in the events history. First place is no easy task with professional racers and olympians making the journey from all over Japan to take part.

As soon as the race finished wild weather moved over and at the moment we have strong winds, low visibility and light rain showers. Luckily the snow is not quite sticky just yet so the riding will be spring like at least for the time being. It is likely that some of the top lifts will be on wind hold this morning. The forecast is for cold air to arrive this afternoon with moderate snow showers expected.

Yesterday saw icy and very fast conditions in the morning before the warm sun heated the snowpack into fast and fun slush. The spot to be was the Yamabiko area, with the natural half pipe under the hooded chair in especially good form. Light winds and blue skies prevailed throughout the day and the atmosphere on the mountain was outstanding.

Looking at the forecast ahead we expect light to moderate snow showers and cool temperatures to continue overnight. Following that, tomorrow afternoon and tuesday will be clear or partly cloudy before more snow, which is expected on Wednesday night. It is possible that this system will produce decent snowfall. Lets hope it comes off.
